The Old Fortress of Corfu is a complicated construction that took conturies to complete. The first fortifications in it's nowdays are started in the 4th centry A.D., after the destruction of the ancient town by the Bandals. Fortifications procceded by the Western and the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantines) and the final constructions took place by the Venetians in the 16th century A.D. The British commisioners added some part later on.
Our swim will start in the NAOK (Nautical Athletic Club of Corfu) are and will proceed all along the southern side of the fortress. The edge of the fortress, known by the name, Caposidero is the middle of our swim tour, where we will meet a secret small beach for a rest. Later, turning left while heading NW, we will come close to the fallen wall and the shore gates of the fortress. There another small beach for some opportunity tourists and few locals await for us, just to have a peek of the Northern Walls.
Our last heading will be the Kardaki area, a famous intown beach, well known for its small bars and graphic onshore restaurants & cafes. In such a cafe we will have some final refreshments, sitting, relaxing and having a fantastic view on the big castle.
